Rotten reviews for Baywatch movie but Priyaka shines as a goddess

baywatch movie review

Baywatch movie is about to release in India on June 2 but the reviews from US will make you think twice before you book tickets. The movie recently released in America and has been getting negative reviews which definitely put our mood down. The much awaited movie starring the Rock aka Dwayne Johnson, the super hot Zac Efron and the Indian goddess Priyanka Chopra has been reviewed by many critics and the movie is being trolled its puerile humour and lack of plot.

This definitely comes as a surprise as Dwayne has easily managed to pull off thin movies in the past and Zac is just too perfect to give a flop. However, critics are praising Priyanka Chopra for her work in the film and that’s what makes us more eager to watch the movie.

Rotten Tomatoes gave its judgment by saying – “Baywatch takes its source material’s jiggle factor to R-rated levels, but lacks the original’s campy charm — and leaves its charming stars flailing in the shallows”.

While the New York post said – “It washes up on the beach like a dead whale… Even the action scenes need CPR, often undermined by effects so chintzy, you wonder if the money intended for them was instead eaten up by the production’s seven-figure waxing budget. It’s a shame. The cast is capable, and a meta-examination of “Baywatch” should have produced something sharper”.

The Telegraph said – “The plot, about an Indian gangster queen (Priyanka Chopra) importing drugs along the coast, is wafer-thin and perfunctory at best. And yet, somehow, Gordon stretches the movie’s running time to two hours, beefing it up with a fatuous romantic subplot and not one, but two heinously long-winded penile gags ripped straight from the Farrelly brothers’ textbook of gross-out comedy”.

When it came to Priyanka, The Guardian had to say, “Even Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra, the underused villain of the piece, looks like she was contractually obliged to show as much flesh as permissible”.

Birth. Movies.Death’s review felt as if they wanted to say that Priyanka was too good for the movie, “The Indian goddess brings a (sadly underutilized) brainy charisma to every scene that feels fit for a better picture”.

Elle had to write –  “Priyanka Chopra, though, as real-estate titan villainness Victoria Leeds, makes everything around her look like a really, really nice car commercial”.

Radio Times praised Priyanka, “Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra judges the mood perfectly, playing the villain with exactly the right amount of dramatic flair (“I’m not a Bond villain… yet” she teases during an interrogation)”.

These Baywatch movie reviews may be negative but the heart wants what it wants. Priyanka, Dwayne and Zac cannot be missed and I am sure the movie will do well in India. Let’s wait and watch how India treats Baywatch movie.
